Hi, it sounds like you have had an electrical power surge to the unit and it may have blowen some part in your unit. Only way to find out is to get it checked out by repairer.

If I stop regular microwave cooking to check the progress, and then push start to continue, it does not cook. It just stops working. I have video of bacon taking 15 minutes to cook, because it stopped. ...


Sounds like door switch issues. Thinking the only thing you did was open and close the door, not change programing or anything. If you have an issue with a door switch and it doesnt close right after opening and closing the door( when you stir), the unit thinks the door is open so it will not run. Once the bad connection cools down it contracts and reconnects and the unit will work again. Frequently you can find which switch is doing that if you just look at the switches and see if you have any browning inside of the plastic insulators over the wires that push onto the switch terminals. If the connecton is bad it will get hot that will brown the plastic protector

My new Haier microwave isn't working! I just plugged it in for the first time, and set the clock on it. Then I tried to turn it on. No matter what cook time I enter, and then press start/30 sec., nothing...


When it times down but doesnt heat it is typically a problem with the door switches, especially one you just bought, may have been from shipping . A switch or connection may have been disodged when being shipped to you. Most machines have something like 4-5 wswitches, If 1 doesnt report right it will stiop the unit from running. But since some of them are closed it will accept the programing and try to operate. So a lot of times you get fan running and tray turning but no power to the secondary circuits. You will need to find out who does warranty for them or return it where you bought it as a defective unit.

It appears your magneto or power supply has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Old Quasar (Panasonic) Microwave won't work


I believe you need to set the clock on that before it will take cook programing. So Push the clear pad then push clock, Maybe clock twice. Been a while sorry!! set the time and I think you have to puch clock again, for it ro start the clock or start. As long as you do not puch cook then any time pushing start should only start the clock. That should do the trick. Good Luck!

Need the code to reset programing on microwave


Try this first: Unplug the microwave from power source for about 15 minutes and rreplug and see. Make sure that the wall plug is viable. If not, try using a different outlet and see. If both fail, then you may need to get the microwave serviced.

Panasonic Oven repair


The oven is Normaly service by board and parts swapping. The processor board would be difficult to service without proper diagnostics. If you take in consideration of the time and the extent of the diagnostics to analyse the fault, it would not be cost effective.

The most common causes of failure is the power supplies, and safety switches. Follow the information in the service manual to take voltage reading and test the switches.

If you have to work in the high voltage section, take great precaution. This is very dangerous to work on. You will need the proper high voltage test meter probe to check for proper high voltage operation. The service people swap out parts to test. This is the fastest, safest, and easiest way to service these.

Normally, outside of warranty we found these not worth to service unless the fault was very simple.
